Extended Product Information
This 3-Piece Adjustable Fiberglass Paddle by Tower is a great value if you're looking for a reliable and durable SUP paddle. Made up of a fiberglass shaft and ABS blade with rubber edging, it is very well-constructed with a high end finish. The adjusting clasp is the same seen on our carbon kevlar paddle, so you know you are not compromising on quality. The paddle extends from 65"-85", with a printed marker on the adjusting shaft piece to ensure you are always paddling within the recommended length range.
The general rule of thumb is that a sup paddle should be 5-7 inches above the riders height. Our 3-piece paddle has a height range from 5'4 to 7 feet, making it compatible for anyone, but optimized for those 4'10 - 6'7 tall.
Fiberglass has the benefit of being both a lightweight and durable material. The fiberglass shaft ensures you won't have weak points throughout the paddle as this frequently occurs in comparably priced paddles on the market. The glossy Tower Paddle Boards logo that decorates the length of the shaft gives the paddle a high end look and feel.
Moving down, the 16" blade is constructed with ABS plastic for increased durability and minimal flex. ABS plastic is a superior plastic due to its toughness and finish. It combines the strength and rigidity of a number of plastics for a dependable and lightweight paddle blade construction. In addition, the blade is reinforced by rubber edging to make it even more durable and protect against any paddle hacks to your board while in use.
This paddle floats under normal use, but it does NOT float if it is continually submerged and gets water-logged with water. To prevent waterlogging, just periodically open the paddle and drain any accumulated water from the shaft. However, we do have a great trick to ensure floatation. Cut a pool noodle and insert the pieces inside the paddle OR wrap pieces around the outside of the paddle.
Overall, the 3-Piece Adjustable Fiberglass Paddle by Tower is complete quality and durability at an unbeatable price.
NOTE: Be sure to rinse paddle with freshwater after each use. Salt water will slowly corrode the metal parts of paddles over time if not cared for properly.
The Reviews Are In!
The three-piece paddle is nice. It held up for approximately six years and it was time to replace it.
For the price these paddles are great. Similar or lighter than aluminum with a better feel and better paddle. Easy to adjust and the lock isn’t located where you hold the paddle which is nice.
We ordered the 3 piece paddle but it arrived with only 2 pieces. I sent an email to customer service and they responded within a day with a tracking number for a new paddle + some swag. Best customer service experience I've ever had!
Super great price on sale! Love this paddle perfect for my daughter, and love that its adjustable! Well packaged and I think you have a great company!
Compared to my gf’s aluminum paddle, it’s a little lighter and stays cooler in direct sunlight.
This paddle sinks which is a terrible characteristic for a paddle. Also because it's black, good luck searching the bottom of the lake for it.
If you plan on paddling more than once a year, skip this paddle. I bought 5 for a rental fleet and the clamp housing will either break from over tightening or will be too loose and the t-grip will spin. Also there are different styles of screws, and the Phillips style has already stripped. Might as well spend a twice as much on a paddle that won't give you so many headaches. Or a cheaper one without the same issues.
Excellent paddles, except when people lose them
I was hesitant to get the three piece since the more connection points usually means less sturdy but that has not been my experience with this. It didn't cost a ton and seems solid even when I'm putting in more effort to do a harder workout.
My biggest complaint about board paddles is many are too long. Many times my dog will ride on my board, and for that I occasionally sit down - I’m always alternating between sitting and standing and this paddle is perfect for both and easily adjusts!
